Business Commitment to the CommunityBack to Winners

The world’s largest online store for luxury kidswear, Childrensalon Limited has not only increased its business growth by 30% a year for the past two years, but also cares about the community and environment.
Based in Tunbridge Wells, the company has two core values – people before profit and protecting the environment.
In 2017, it established its own charitable trust, helping people through a number of organisations such as Porchlight and Look Ahead. In the past few years, it has helped a Nourish Community Foodbank deliver in snow storms, provided gifts and dinner to several shelters at Christmas and donated thousands to charities. Helping families settle through the Syrian Vulnerable Person Refugee Scheme is another of its projects continuing this year, alongside Kent County Council.
Employees volunteer both during work hours and in their own time to help raise money for all the charities Childrensalon work with. It is one of the biggest sponsors of local charity, Taylor Made Dreams, which helps terminally ill children tick off their bucket list while also providing counselling and support.
Headline sponsor for Crazy Jeans Soapbox Race this year, it is also making monthly donations to Domestic Abuse Volunteer Support Service, and has bought properties to be leased to the council for rough sleepers.
On top of this, the high-end fashion business aim to be as eco-friendly as possible.
Its operation is powered completely by solar panels, the office is plastic bottle free and it only uses recycled paper and packaging. Plans for electric car charging points to encourage low-emission vehicles are also in the pipeline.
